The characters in the book are well written and you get attached to them very easily and get to know their pov.
Even though the title suggests it all but i was still hoping for a different ending. Nevertheless i enjoyed it enough and it was a binge-read.
“But no matter what choices we make - solo or together - our finish line remains the same … No matter how we choose to live, we both die at the end.”
It sounded like an extremely powerful read and yet They Both Die At The End had far less of an emotional impact on me unlike Silvera's debut novel More Happy Than Not. While that book had me gripped with emotion, huge chunks of this book were very slow.
Even though, this was such a great concept and idea, I felt that if more work was put into it, it could've been way better. I loved all the characters who were carefully weaved and how they were dealing with their own deaths and lives yet I think that there could've been so much more. We are already spoiled by the blurb about the start of the book and the title further spoils the ending for us. Very little actually happens that we don't know before starting the book.
The main characters, Rufus and Mateo are polar opposites and yet similar. This was one aspect of the book I really liked. As always Adam's characters actually sound like teens which is a knack many authors in YA genre lack (Rufus in me: that rhymes). Rufus was a character who excelled in maintaining the correct balance between depth and comedy. He was definitely my personal favorite. Mateo is a small precious little bean who deserves to be wrapped in bubble wrap and preserved. But well, as you have been spoiled from the title he dies (Rufus's dark humor is affecting me).
The writing style of the book also reminded me of one of my favorites from 2017: Sun Is Also A Star. This was the inclusion of random chapters from other characters' perspectives. In between Mateo's and Rufus's story, we get a brief glimpse into the lives of many other characters. There's something about this that I love - the suggestion that no character is throwaway, that even though some characters are not central to the story being told, they all have their own lives and stories going on. It also gave us a lot of insight into how Death-Cast has affected others.
World-building was my one real issue. I would have liked more explanation or building around Death-Cast and how it works. The concept was incredibly interesting and unique, and I would have loved to see it expanded on. However, this aside I did like the culture and ideas around the idea of End-Days, and I felt it was incredibly realistic of what it would be like if this was real. The way that society is dealing with the burden gave the story another layer of depth, and I really liked the way that all the individual storylines within the book all intertwined throughout the world.
To reiterate, I'd say that this book was definitely a one time read and it's worth giving it a chance if you like LGBT+ books or want to start reading it. And Adam Silvera, of course, is a genius and a GREAT writer. His writing is raw and rich and it'll grab you by the heartstrings from page one, and then won't let go- not even when you close the book.
READ THE BOOK INSTEAD
I was bawling my eyes out at middle of the night... it is what it says they both die but that's not what the book is about really it showed what they did while they were still alive.
I feel like people give up easily on 'living their lives' cause everything is going to end someday, and we take it for granted that we are still very much alive.
Adam Silvera did a good job showing how different people perceived life, for instance Rufus' parents and sister: they gave up on even trying to get out of car, maybe cause they knew it would all be pointless and Rufus was the only hope.
Deirdre Clayton(the virtual adventure lady who sat near the entrance): she didn't die cause she found hope from those two boys who were still living.
Delilah: She didn't accept death even though it was right in front of her, that's what kept her moving and not giving up when she has 2 otherwise fatal accidents. (That got me thinking she did not accept victor too cause she knew that will be the end of her career hence her life and maybe she died when she met victor cause he is her death)
The gang with no name: their life will be dead even when they are not physically dead. If they change to be a better people their life wouldn't be so dead.
And ofcourse Mateo and Rufus: Rufus found hope in the last friend app and Mateo found hope from Rufus. If they didn't meet each other they would have probably died in the same place: Mateo in his house without ever doing anything and Rufus while crossing the road looking down at his phone waiting for Aimee.
All this got me thinking why Death-Cast did not tell the exact time of death when they could say the end day (ready?): cause they simply dont know. Death is inevitable but it all depends on the person's will to live. If we convert that one day into our lifespan; we all are part of the Death-cast cause we know we all are gonna die (we get the call the moment we are born) and few of us dont realize that it's pointless worrying about death itself cause it will come for sure. What we need to think about is that what are we going to do with the live we have. Cause we can do anything in one day ANYTHING. Yesterday I spent my day reading this book which I'm very grateful of, today I could be doing something I love, heck could, would, should've are too big words to use in this short life.
Now I feel good (sorry this review was more like a life reflection for me)
Regardless of where you are in your life right now, read this book. Trust me when I say this- you need it.
